Review: Religion Saves And Nine Other Misconceptions by Mark Driscoll

Monday, July 27, 2009

Review of Religion Saves And Nine Other Misconceptions I have an admission: I submitted to review this book partly out of somewhat morbid curiosity. Over the years, I’ve heard things about Mark Driscoll, the Mars Hill Church(es), and the movement formerly known as “emergent”. But that was also buffered by some great people from Mars […]

Review of: Rex

Wednesday, May 20, 2009

Rex: A Mother, Her Autistic Child, and the Music that Transformed Their Lives(full title just doesn’t fit properly in my blog’s theme…) I’d put off reading this book for far too long. Not because I didn’t want to, just that life happened. Too many times. But I finally read it–not nearly in the time that […]

Review: The Noticer

Thomas Nelson offered up another treasure in The Noticer by Andy Andrews. I don’t often write this, but this book is a must-read. The book tells the story of Jones, as he’s known to many, an old drifter that offers words of encouragement and great wisdom to people in need of the hope that only […]

Former Secretary of Education and Director of the Office of National Drug Control Policy Bill Bennett serves up another feel-good collection of stories and anecdotes, similar in style but differing in focus from his 1993 book The Book of Virtues: A Treasury of Great Moral Stories. The American Patriot’s Almanac: Daily Readings on America is […]

Every once in a while a book comes along that is not only written well, but is impacting. That is Billy: The Untold Story of a Young Billy Graham and the Test of Faith that Almost Changed Everything by William Paul McKay and Ken Abraham. This is the third book I’ve reviewed for Thomas Nelson […]

Review: Through the Storm by Lynne Spears

When Thomas Nelson Publishers announced the opening up of reviews for this book by Lynne Spears, mother of Britney and Jamie Lynn, I threw in my hat. I didn’t actually expect to be one of the bloggers chosen, since it was near the deadline, and also because I hadn’t received an email reply. But a […]

Olympia Family Theatre

Last night we went to the Olympia Family Theatre‘s production of BFG (for those who aren’t familiar, Big Friendly Giant by Roald Dahl of Charlie and the Chocolate Factory fame). I normally don’t give glowing reviews, but the performance was phenomenal. We were in a very small theatre at the Kenneth J. Minnaert Center for […]

Review: The Total Transformation Program

Wednesday, October 15, 2008

I stumbled across information about this program months ago, and had at some point posted about it (but now can’t locate that post!). Anyway, I was able to obtain a copy of the program to review. The program is designed for parents with children who have behavioral problems. Sometimes it’s ADD/ADHD, sometimes just total disrespect […]

Review: Third Day, Revelation

As I alluded to in the previous post about some of the things that help give comfort during this past week, the new album by Third Day was among those. This is a must-have album, and is easily Third Day’s best. I’d originally purchased it to have for the 3.5 hr drive to Cannon Beach […]

Review: The Faith of Barack Obama

When Thomas Nelson Publishers selected me to be one of the bloggers to review the book, I was excited…both to be able to be one of the review bloggers, but also to read the book. I was interested in learning more about the Democratic nominee and the faith he has put out there so prominently. […]
